When I was 5 or 6, I was at some kind of day care quite often, and there was mandatory nap time. Everyone had to lay down and at least be quite for an hour, at best take a nap.
I was NEVER able to fall asleep, I would try to talk to the kids next to me, I’d hum and talk to myself and ask the teacher in a whisper whatever came to mind.
I was constantly put in a separate smaller room with a cot to lay by myself (which I’m now realizing was literally a closet that had a light switch) I remember feeling very ashamed and lonely. I’d often be left there for what felt like longer than the hour everyone was trying to nap.
There was one time where the caregiver said I could go into the room with the books and not take a nap as long as I was quiet. I was really excited and was looking at all the books, And within 5 minutes I started singing to myself and she came out and put me in the small room again.
I think this is the first memory I have of being “put away and punished” for reasons I just couldn’t understand.
And then I remembered something else I had forgotten.
My teacher in 2nd grade did this thing where she’d take out a report card with all our names and it would start with 10 points. She’d put it on the projector so everyone can watch. And she starts asking the kids if any of the other kids bothered them, were mean to them, etc.
And I was constantly sent home with daily report cards with 0-1 points left on it, because I chased Ethan during recess and I touched April’s hair during lunch and I kept talking to people during class.
Detention all the time, barely understanding why I was so distracting. Yelled at by my parents and my teachers and sometimes people I thought were my friends.
I think it's really fucked up how I went through my entire childhood/most of youth with people just deciding I wasn’t worth their time to figure out when I acted in a way they couldn't connect with. Because now at 30 and having been recently diagnosed, I am a partially functioning adorable wreck with intense rejection sensitivity.
And I might’ve been better by now had someone put in the time
Sleeping on the floor with blankets is more comfortable then sleeping on an air mattress or cot when you are at someone else's house, also an air mattress and a cot can be so loud when you try to find the right position to sleep in.

Alright alright I feel the slog why? Nothing is happening, yet we know lots is happening. So I just finished the chapter where "what ever was going on in the west" just ended. (Literally haven't read a page past that chapter) I have some qustions, general answers are ok.

Hey gang, wondering if you fine friends would have any tips for cleaning the truck faster. I'm a brand new EMT and that seems to be the one thing that all my medics complain about. That I'm to slow to wipe down my cot, bp cuff, pulse ox, and 12 lead. And then sweeping out the box and spraying it down.
My step brother is coming to stay in August with his 8 month old at which point I’ll be 12 weeks. I’m having an early scan (8 weeks) so if everything is ok we will tell them then. However, my question is we share a house with my parents and my mum has told my step brother that we will buy a travel cot for them to use by then. I’m kinda thinking that it might be better just to buy a proper cot and they can use it whilst they are here and then we will use it in the future. Does that seem like tempting fate (buying a cot so early?)
Tent camper here who has only used pads on the grow ground in my 40 years here. Been using rei self inflatable camp pads and have done well, but I'm looking into cots and was curious for insights on what to look out for, what to consider, what to know, etc. I'm 6 foot and 250, so not exactly small, so keep that in mind. Thanks.
For the past week now put 2.5 year olds cot is wet every morning. She wears nappies and is potty trained durring the day. Over the past couple of days we've tried reducing her milk, buying the next up in nappies and getting her to go to the toilet before bed (last one is a bit harder). Last night we managed all 3 and we were very confident she would be dry this morning. Low and behold its a wet cot again. I dont know what else to do
To preface this, I just want to be clear that I'm a sceptic along with my parents. But when my mum told me this story a while ago, I have to admit, I'm not too sure what to think about the paranormal.
I was real young whenever this happened, my mum doesn't remember how old I was, but she knew I wasn't old enough to be able to climb out of my cot in my room.
So, my mum had put me to bed at about 7pm, and had done her things around the house and went to bed later that night with my dad.
Both of them were woken by a scream like murder coming from my room. They both ran into my room, and my mum whispered this to me....I was laying down in the middle of the room, silent and awake.
Of course my mother grabbed me and didn't let me go all night. My dad checked the houses windows, doors and skylights. All locked. My brother and sister were fine, too.
Something like that never happened again, but small things still go on in the house. Like lightbulbs blowing randomly, weird footsteps, and the dog going apeshit when passing the attic stairs.
My dad shuts me down every time I try and ask him what happened, and my mum tells me to drop it when I ask her again.
Edit: I asked my Grandma if she remembered anything about it and she went pale before ignoring me.
I'm starting to get a little more worried about this now Reddit.
I just finished CoT and my goodness it was dryer than plain white toast in the desert. A friend to me from KoD on, it’s way better. Please tell me this is true. I really enjoyed the first nine books, but found CoT almost insufferable.
LO is 10 months old and has only slept well on or next to me; we've bedshared and done only contact naps since he was 2 months old (when he woke up to the world and decided he hated any sleep that wasn't latched onto mum...). I would really like some sleep back, as I'm surviving on about 4 hours a night between teething and all-night feeding frenzies and the number bedsharing has done on my back. We started putting him in his cot in his room for the first sleep of the night a month ago, and some nights it's terrible, some it's not bad - he's done 4 hour stretches twice now, so I think he's starting to get it.
My question is, can I successfully get him to sleep (mostly) in his own bed, while keeping the contact naps? I still enjoy those, and it's really the night sleep that needs to change so I can sleep as well. Everyone is telling me I need to start with naps in the cot... is that true?
Thanks in advance for any and all insight!
